I thought it was dead but it was very alive, it’s just the wind was a bit strong for a little moth.

Insects visiting lights at Shark Valley paybooth (photographed on or around the building)

I came out to Shark Valley for some blacklighting and set up three sheets. Moon was 78% illuminated, which I think played a big role in reducing the amount of insects that came to the lights. The wind was around 5 knots at most and didn't give me too many problems with where I set up my sheets.

All of my observations from tonight (including insects that were visiting strong lights at the Shark Valley pay booth):
https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?d1=2022-08-07&d2=2022-08-08&nelat=25.931537416919234&nelng=-80.59965166675138&order_by=observed_on&place_id=any&swlat=25.591417802715608&swlng=-81.40714678393888&user_id=joemdo

Here is some more info about my blacklight setups from tonight:

Bioquip blacklight hooked up to the regular outlets at the Visitor's Center. I just used the SW side of the building rather than setting up a sheet.

Two cheapy DJ blacklights connected to USB powerpack set up on the western part of the trail, less than a quarter mile south

Two cheapy DJ blacklights connected to USB powerpack set up outside of the main gate of Shark Valley. I didn't spend much time photographing insects here because it was already pretty late and the wind was moving the sheet around

Not a blacklight setup but simply the lights of the paybooth that were attracting lots of insects. I did not set up a sheet but just photographed the insects on the building.
